What Is Kinesiology Taping & How Is It Applied?
Kinesiology taping is not a stand-alone treatment but may be used in conjunction with other techniques within your treatment. This taping technique treats symptoms of pain and injury and can help prevent injury.
Tape can be applied to provide support for weak or injured muscles, tendons and joints, help to activate weak muscles, relax strained or overused muscles and inhibit tight muscles, which can help improve performance and prevent injury. It is also used to accelerate the healing process by increasing blood flow, support joints and reduce swelling, which helps reduce the tenderness and pain associated with injury.
